West Indies vs Sri Lanka

West Indies will host Sri Lanka in three match-Test series in June this year. This will be the Asian country’s fourth visit to the Caribbean Islands since it became a full-member nation in 1981.


Trinidad, Barbados and St Lucia, where Sri Lanka is playing a Test for the first time, are the venues for the three games, with the first match at the Queen's Park Oval, from 6th June, while the third Test is scheduled to be held at Darren Sammy Cricket Ground from June 23. Sri Lanka are also scheduled to play a three-day warm-up match, between May 30 and June 1 at the Brian Lara Cricket Ground in Trinidad.


Sri Lanka has won one, lost three and drawn two of the six Tests on tour till date, starting with the visit in 1997 under the captaincy of Arjuna Ranatunga soon after winning the 1996 ICC Cricket World Cup.


The second Test of the series will be hosted in Barbados, from 14th June. The Kensington Oval in Barbados will host the first day/night Test match in the Caribbean. The series will also mark Sri Lanka's first tour of the Caribbean in 10 years.


The previous two-match Test tour ended in a 1-1 deadlock, with Sri Lanka claiming their maiden Test win in the West Indies with a 121-run victory in Guyana in March 2008 before the West Indies levelled things with a six-wicket win in Trinidad and Tobago.


Since then, Sri Lanka have travelled to the West Indies for limited-overs fixtures - the World T20 in 2010 and a tri-series featuring the two sides and India in 2013. This will be the fourth Test series between the two sides in the Caribbean.


The most recent Test series between the two sides took place in Sri Lanka, in October 2015, where the hosts thrashed West Indies 2-0 to claim the Sobers-Tissera Trophy.
